While there are legit cases of excess skin after weight loss, what many people think is loose or excess skin is actually just excess body fat, which is soft and jiggly and easily mistaken as skin. There’s an easy way to tell if you’re dealing with actual loose skin or too much body fat.
Losing weight is a momentous achievement and ought to be celebrated for sure, but for some having to contend with loose skin as a result of losing a great deal of weight can be disappointing. You may feel like you’ve won in one area and lost in another, but this is not necessarily the case. In fact, there are some natural ways that you can increase your skin’s elasticity and tighten the areas in need over a matter of time.Loose or excess skin is often caused by weight loss. In general, the treatment for loose skin requires the excision of the loose skin. Frequently, these types of procedures are known as “lifts.”How lose your skin gets after losing weight depends on several factors:
how much weight you’ve lost, how old you were when you lost the weight, how many times you’ve lost and gained the weight back, and how quickly you lost it (the faster you lose it, the less time your skin has to tighten naturally).
Drink Plenty of Water:
Drinking a lot of water not only improves your overall health, it also will help your skin to become tighter, smoother, and look more radiant. Be sure to drink at least 6 glasses of water per day. If you can drink more than that, even better. Hydration is wonderful for your skin and certainly helps with the elasticity of such.
Try a sea salt scrub:
Sea salt scrubs naturally increase blood flow to your skin, thus encouraging healthy elastin and collagen production – a must if you want your skin to tighten up. Rub some on in the shower or bath at least three times a week, and watch the changes enfold.
